This Mr. Wippy video makes no sense.

This video makes NO sense.

I was meandering around the Internets searching for an Ugly Doll review, particularly of one my kid fancies which is a Wippy doll--a pink bunny which is rather silly looking.  Then I come across this girl's video which is just painful to watch.  A friend asked me why I watched it in the first place and I told her if you were a space explorer who was the first human to encounter a black hole... you'll plunge your ship right in.

God I hope my kid doesn't turn out like the girl in the video.

Tried out a Parenting Hack Today and it Works!!!

I normally don't follow parenting advice on geek specialty sites like Buzzfeed or Gizmodo.  Initially the "hacks" idea may apply in organizing your house or your life but I thought it abhorrent that it would apply to parenting.  I didn't think I'd shortcut my way out of parenthood, I scoffed.  

Then I tried one hack--using this generic basket to contain my baby in an otherwise oversized bathtub.  brilliant!

How to Adjust a Baby Sling

Wearing your baby is just one way to bond with your little one. In some cultures, a baby sling is a regular fixture of motherhood, allowing moms to be close to their babies while giving her the freedom to go about her day, doing mommy things like chores and shopping.

The Peanut Shell Adjustable Sling - Hey Momma why not carry ur baby all day
But there is an art to adjusting a sling so both mother and baby are comfortable together. Most baby slings have rings that look like simple fasteners, but actually allow you to tighten various parts of the sling and loosen others, so baby is comfortably positioned and the sling doesn't pull on your neck and shoulders. The foam-padded section at one end isn't for the bay (as some might assume) but for cushioning the mom’s neck and shoulders.

Because a sling requires you to carry most of a baby’s weight on one side, you may experience neck and back discomfort. When that happens, try switching sides. You may want to cradle your baby with your arm when she is inside the carrier until both of you become used to how it feels. Walking around and talking to baby may calm her if she gets fussy. Coaching from an experience sling wearer can help. Talk to a friend who has used one or get in touch with an org to find someone to give you pointers. You can also watch online sling videos to get you started.

Win VIP Points Play Good & Evil Slots at Luna Casino

There's a new online casino slot game and you can say it's a battle between Good vs Evil! Quite a challenge, but there's a lot of VIP Points to go around. Good for a spin, if you're up for it!

Whether you play good or have a bad time, make sure you cash in on the terrific VIP Points when you play Good & Evil Online Casino Slots at Lunacasino!  

Bonuses jump from game to game at Lunacasino—so you have to watch out which online casino game the bonuses latch on.  In this case, it’s on Good & Evil Online Casino Slots where you’ll get thrice more VIP points than what you usually get!

On Good & Evil—theme wise, this is a unique game that doesn’t typically discuss the battle between good and evil—rather, good and evil work together to make a classic game more exciting!  You’d think to avoid the evil side like some classic battle of morals kind of game, but interestingly, the game philosophy is all about the two sides being good.  In practice, all this really means is that you have to get good combinations of all symbols, which mean neither is good or bad for your game.  You just need to get uniform versions of the symbols, as the rule in any slots machine game.  Other symbols abound in the game: cards from a 52 card deck, with high symbols of course being the face cards: Jacks, Queens and Kings and of course, the Ace.    
When you check on top of the screen, you’ll see something called the face tube, where it is necessary to collect 10 faces pertaining to specific symbols in the game.  Gain all ten and you win 10 free spins, which allows for a double multiplier for any win you might get within those free spins.

There are two ways you can win the jackpots: either you get 5 Good symbols on a payline, or 5 Evil symbols—consistency is key in this game.  Metaphorically—does it mean you have to be consistently good or evil to win?  Paylines three and five are the ones to watch out for since that’s where the jackpot occurs.

Good & Evil is one of the most interesting games offered in the online casino slots menu of Lunacasino.  And consistent with the kind of quality that Lunacasino tries to deliver to its clients—sporting excellent graphics, crisp sounds and smooth game play—no less than what is expected from the best casino gaming site on the web today.

Dinner and Drinks on Me!

Hunting for a good restaurant in Mountain View on a Friday night. Should have made reservations early... my bad :( A friend of mine Sheila just arrived from Boston and doesn't like sushi. But enjoys really good red meat with veggies on the side.

For dinner, we're going to have a nice variety of things. Maybe even drop by that Mediterranean place a couple of doors down from Suarez Puntos Grill which is a spicy TexMex spot. All that and loads of BFF chatter! Just Awesome!
